Have you ever had so many projects you needed to complete that you just froze and didn't do anything for awhile? That's how I have been lately. Instead of sewing I have been reading alot and knitting. I do this to myself every time I take on orders or need to make gifts. Buying "Cherry Fizz" was the motivation I needed to get moving. I won't cut into it until I get the five (yes you read that right) quilts I have to complete in the next seven weeks.
Time to get the motor running, literally. First one to tackle is a graduation gift for a sweet friend of my daughter's. This is not a hard quilt and making the flowers is quite addicting. How each flower comes out is a surprise.
The pattern is called "May Flowers" and comes from the jelly roll book shown below. I used scraps of fabrics that I have made two other quilts with. This quilt is really a stash buster and if you are looking to reduce your stash or scrap basket, this is the one for you!
I find that the example quilt has too much cream for me so I will be using a color for the flower blocks and a patterned fabric for the borders. The good thing about this quilt is that I will only have to purchase batting. Yea! I love it when that happens!
